Ronald Reagan's years as a Eureka College student, as well as the many years as a devoted alumnus, trustee and friend of the college, are documented in a variety of sources held in the Eureka College Archives.


The textual materials take the form of correspondence, news clippings, magazine and journal articles, and a selection of the many monographic titles published by and about President Reagan, covering his movie years on up through his presidency.


Our photographic materials collection comes from a wide variety of sources, mostly local, and documents his student years as well as his many return visits to the college.


An inventory of collection holdings, as well as other online holdings in the college archives may be
found here.
